A Colorado Springs radio station has suspended two DJs for playing the Dixie Chicks, even though station manager Jerry Grant says he expects to restore the Chicks to the playlist eventually, even though three quarters of the calls the station has received regarding the Chicks have been in favor of playing them, and even though the outrage is clearly fizzling out across the country.
If this is a matter of principle for the station, shouldn't the Chicks be dropped forever? And if it isn't, and nobody really cares any more, why the DJ suspensions now? Did the Chicks not serve some sort of mandatory minimum in Colorado country radio purgatory?
(By the way, for what it's worth, the station, KKCS, is not owned by Clear Channel.)
